Typewritten letter from N.A. Thompson to Frederick Lanchester

Scope and Content

Reply to LAN/1/2/116. Gives information about Porte: Porte was a good pilot; he returned from America on the outbreak of war bringing with him latest Curtiss designs which he handed to Holt Thomas, who at once built a batch for the government. This was a breach of the agreement between the Curtiss Co. and White and Thompson.
